I got some great news the other day. My friend Teri emailed me and said that she was inspired by my blog to try her hand at making a quilt. See? Told you! Great news! Needless to say, I was tickled silly. Welcoming a new quilter into the fold is such fun, isn’t it?
She asked me two questions: Where do I buy my fabric, and what is the best book to help her get started. I think we all know that there are few places I won’t buy fabric (although I do have standards), so I am good in giving her tips there. I can definitely give her a little help in spending her money.
As far as books go, though, it’s been a long time since I actually bought any books, and I don’t remember having any that I started with. And, many of the books I do own are long out of print. So, I though you all might be able to provide some answers.
Could you help me out by going down to the comments here on the blog and leaving the title of the one book that you think is THE go-to for somebody just starting out? Please do leave comments here, and not on Facebook, so she’ll be sure to see your responses. Also, if you could leave a word of encouragement for her, it’d go a long way.
Thanks so much! I appreciate the help!
p.s. I’ll be back tomorrow to fill you in on my progress on Quilts of Valor Sew Day!
